install GPU FAH client on HD4850

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
is there some kind of guide on how to install the GPU client?

i downloaded the latest driver for the HD4850 (the hotfix) and also the GPU2 V6 client from here:
http://folding.stanford.edu/English/DownloadWinOther

but when i install it and goto run it i get an error message. (screenie attached)

so what to do?

i did some research and came up with this:

but that doesn't help. i know some people have gotten it to work, but where they using XP?

The GPU not supported... I bet your using 8.5 or 8.6 drivers. I had to drop to 8.4.
Currently I'm using 8.476.0.0
There is alleged to be a new GPU2 client coming out got the ATI, not a clue as to when or what it addresses.

The 8.6 with the hot fix should get you going.
If not, have you tried DC in safe mode and a full driver reload?

hmmm interesting.

so dropping down to an earlier driver will work eh? but that makes me wonder is the 4850 even supported by the earlier driver?

the hotfix has the driver included, therefore i don't think i can drop to an earlier driver, i will probably just have to wait til the new ati-gpu client comes out.

Thanks for all the help duke, lol you seem to be in like almost every thread i go in. you are a very helpful man.

I don't know if the earlier driver will address your issue, I only reflected what cured mine

From what I've read, the hot fix and 8.5 or 8.6 should work with a 4850... I'm only guessing it may also be a driver cleaning issue too. ATI seems to be a bit fussy when loading new drivers over the old even when they have been removed. After removal, I always go Safe Mode and run Driver Cleaner.

hmmm well i'll probably wait til the new client comes out, fussing around with ati drivers make me go crazy.

now just waiting patiently for that 8800 to arrive so i can FOLD!!!! lol

driver cleaner hangs on me safe mode or not in x64 vista.

I am currently getting about 1400ppd with hotfix drivers and HD4850... But I think it should be higher... I hope this gets fixed soon the HD4850 with 800 stream processors should rock...
